    Here is what I found for the 7MM STW
    All the data they are using federal 215 primers, 29"barrel, H1000 powder, all are using 162gr Amax
    75gr @ 3049fps
    76.5gr @ 3114fps
    78gr @ 3192fps
    79gr @ 3254fps
    81gr @ 3322fps

    I would start out some where around 74gr of H1000 and work up
    Powders to consider, H4831SC, H1000, Retumbo. I use to shoot a regular 7MM and I loved it. I use to have a sendero 300RUM but had to get rid of is as I just could not handle packing that beast around, my gunsmith found a guy who had a 280AI and wanted a 300RUM. It is a custom 280AI and it shoots great, its light and hardly any recoil to it. Keep us informed. Good luck

    I am using 79 grains of RL 25 behind 162 A-Max in my STW. I am getting 3290 fps. I run a 30 in tube.

    I am loading 80+ grains of H-1000, with a 160 AB in a standard 700 Remington. My rifle is more accurate with Nosler cases and RL-19
